Despite a last minute challenge from Katy Perry’s Roar, Jason Derulo holds on to his Official Singles Chart crown for a second week with Talk Dirty.
Jason Derulo today claims a second week at Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart with Talk Dirty FT 2 Chainz.
The US R&B star ended Katy Perry’s two week run at the top last Sunday with her comeback single, Roar, to score his third UK Number 1. Despite a closely fought race between the two tracks, Talk Dirty finished the week 15,000 copies ahead of Roar (Number 2).
OneRepublic climb one place to Number 3 with Counting Stars, while Drake’s Hold On We’re Going Home FT Majid Jordan is up three to Number 4, and Avicii’s You Make Me is a non-mover at 5.
